I was also struck by the size difference although the "Oasis" and her sisters are the third largest class of cruise ships in existence so I suppose it should have come as no surprise. More interestingly to me I just assumed all the Cunard ships were classed as ocean liners but isn't the case, technically, with QE as she apparently lacks the heavier hull plating throughout the entire length of the hull. Rather only the bow sports the heavier steel in order to plow through the North Atlantic....
QE and Q. Victoria are both based on a hybrid of the Vista class cruise ship design.
There is only one ship in the world I would want to be on when crossing the North Atlantic.
